A consultation has opened to allow Islanders to have their say on proposed changes to improve road safety for pedestrians using Midvale Road.
The proposed scheme forms part of the North St Helier Master Plan which was adopted by the States Assembly in June 2011 and seeks to support walking and active travel. The online survey asks for Islanders to give their views on:
- widening pavements on both sides of the road
- making the road one way in a south bound direction
- reducing carriageway width at junctions
- creating three raised tables along the length of the road.
Deputy Kevin Lewis, Minister for Infrastructure said: “Road safety is a priority for me and this Midvale Road project seeks to make this important route into town from the north of St Helier much safer for pedestrians and cyclists in particular.
“This scheme will create a better environment for active travel by widening the pavements and installing speed calming measures and supporting Sustainable Transport goals as we move toward becoming carbon neutral.”
Islanders can submit their comments by completing online survey or by writing to:
